Seagram's Royal Stag is a well-known brand among Indian spirits.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) outfit, Delhi Capitals (DC) have announced an association with Seagram’s Royal Stag. This new deal has made the brand an official partner for the upcoming season of IPL.

According to the company, cricket has always been central to Royal Stag’s brand communication. By partnering with IPL 2022, Royal Stag hopes to increase its engagement with cricket fans across the country and cement its loyalty to the game.

Seagram’s Royal Stag is a well-known brand among Indian spirits. The brand pioneered the grain spirit blended with Scotch malts revolution in India, redefining the spirits space with an international quality blend.

The company was launched in 1995 with a merger of Indian grain spirits and imported Scotch malts and was the first brand in India that didn’t use artificial flavours or recycled bottles, delivering an international quality blend to delight consumers. It takes its name from a deer species known for its long antlers.

The company said, “Royal Stag is delighted to be the Official Partner of the Delhi Capitals for many reasons: It is a team that is led by India’s talismanic wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. What’s more, both the captain and the team are a perfect blend of youthful exuberance and the wisdom of experience. No wonder then, that the team’s passion, flamboyance, and expertise synergize with the brand philosophy of Royal Stag – ‘It’s Your Life. Live it Large.‘ Cricket has always been central to Royal Stag’s brand communication. With this association for IPL 2022, Royal Stag is poised to further bolster its engagement with cricket lovers across the country and cement its loyalty towards the game via sustained engagement with fans throughout the season.

Kartik Mohindra, CMO, Pernod Ricard India, said, “IPL ensures that millions of men and women remain glued to the telecast across almost two months, living the highs and lows of their favourite teams. Delhi Capitals is a superb blend of international and Indian stars, and their brand of cricket is a heady cocktail of natural talent and astute strategy. We are very excited to partner with Delhi Capitals for the forthcoming IPL season. With young cricketing star Rishabh Pant captaining the ship for Delhi Capitals, we know we will get the attention of millennials towards our brand. Cricket being one of India’s biggest passions, we wanted to use the platform of T20 to connect with our consumers using the cultures of Delhi and ethos of the team Delhi capitals.”

Dhiraj Malhotra, Executive Director, Delhi Capitals, commented, “Our partnership with Royal Stag for the forthcoming season of the Indian Premier League is going to be one of our big highlights, barring the sixes our players hit, of course! For us at Delhi Capitals, it’s important to associate with brands that value the sport and understand the emotions attached to it. Royal Stag stands for all of that, and I am confident this will be a successful partnership for both of us, as we look ahead to a splendid season of cricket.”

The brand has always had a deep relationship with cricket. It’s always in the front in any tournament that I have played. I think it’s going to be a great partnership between Delhi Capitals and Royal Stag.”
